Filip practices civil litigation, with a strong focus on employment law.

Prior to joining McCague Borlack LLP, Filip worked for a full-service firm in Ottawa, where he built his practice in employment law and commercial litigation. Filip has a passion for helping employers and employees with their litigation needs at any level of court or tribunal. As well, he prides himself on his work supporting employers and executive employees with the review of their employment contracts, compensation packages, and workplace policies with the goal of avoiding unnecessary future litigation.

Additionally, Filip is building his practice in the area of Occupational Health and Safety Defence and Compliance, and has been assisting senior management employees who are subject to workplace investigations. His investigation guidance includes provincial employees subject to the Employment Standards Act; federal employees subject to the Canada Labour Code; and, specialized employees, such as senior police officials subject to the Police Services Act. Filip's commercial litigation practice includes, but is not limited to, business disputes, construction litigation, and landlord and tenant law.

Filip also regularly enjoys writing about Labour and Employment law as it helps him to strengthen his legal practice. Currently, Filip is a freelance writer for Lancaster House, a prominent Labour, Employment, and Human Rights Law publisher in Canada.

Before legal practice, Filip was classically trained as a chef, worked in the culinary arts for over 15 years, and subsequently worked as a social worker. The skills Filip amassed in his past careers have allowed him to practice law in an efficient and effective manner, while not wavering on client care or the quality of work.

Outside of work, Filip enjoys spending time outdoors with his family and travelling the world. He also regularly revisits his love for the culinary arts through hosting dinners or simply enjoying a nice meal out. Additionally, Filip continues to stay active in Ottawa’s non-profit community and on the board of directors for the CrackUp Comedy Festival.
